Use this Halloween Children’s Message: Fear Not to help your kids say bye-bye to fear.
Text: Psalm 91
Preparation: You’ll need scrap paper and a Bible.
Elementary Children’s Message for Halloween: Fear Not
Distribute 20 sheets of scrap paper and have kids wad the paper as you talk.
Say: It’s almost time for Halloween, and for some people, Halloween is a spooky time.
- What kinds of things do people fear at Halloween?
Say: The Bible tells us that we have nothing to fear at Halloween. Read Psalm 91:1-10.
Say: Let’s act out these verses. Choose a child to be “It.” Have half the children use their bodies to make a shelter to protect It. Have the other half try to hit It with the paper wads. After two minutes of play, stop the action.
- How did “It” feel in the shelter?
- Was it an easy or difficult job to protect It?
- How did your shelter compare with God’s shelter that Psalm 91 tells us about?
Say: You are God’s precious treasure. He is greater than any evil on this Earth. God will protect you. Listen to what God says about you. Read Psalm 91:14-16, personalizing the Scripture by using the pronoun “you.”
Close in prayer, thanking God for his love and protection at Halloween and all times.
